NetID Support

The MSU ID Office is responsible for the provisioning and maintenance of MSU's NetID authentication.

A MSU NetID is a unique, alphanumeric identifier assigned to all current MSU faculty, staff, students, and retirees. MSU NetIDs provide access to the official MSU network and many other online services on campus (e.g., the university's e-mail service). This access is granted based on users' affiliations..
